Are you listening?
I dove the depths and deeper still
I held my breath, I knew the drill
My day would come I knew, but still
Was like a fish without a gill.
With leaden lungs and heavy heart
I sank deeper still into the dark
unknown depths both blind and stark
beckon me to leave my mark.
The weight of hope where wishes fed
blot out the stars from overhead
Deeper still in darkened dread
I held my breath til, I was dead.
